FILM: Listen To Me Marlon

We as much learn about Marlon Brando’s childhood and stormy relationship with his mom, his bad boy reputation in his early stage/movie career as a lady’s man unmatched, his specific feelings at the many stages of his storied career. To hear Brando’s wry monologues about movies we revere so much, “On The Waterfront,” “Streetcar Names Desire” to name a few, as much as his insight into acting on Broadway is really priceless. This was not a man known for sitting down allowing himself to be interviewed, so to hear one of the greatest actors of all time basically expound without being prompted for the most part, is a gift really.

Neil Young + Promise of the Real: The Monsanto Years

Neil Young + Promise of the Real: The Monsanto Years

We are back to simply loud smashing on “People Want To Hear About Love.” The backing vocals from both Nelsons with Young are affective, as is Melgar way in the background, but this simple loud tune is not made any better by a cringe-inducing lyric.

“Working Man” tells the story of a farmer, over blistering electrics and straight-ahead snare in what could be a send-up of Bob Dylan at his “Maggie’s Farm” best. I liked the muted stomp of “Rules Of Change” even its lilting drippling chorus sounds good, but again Young drops the ball with trite lyric.

Listening Party/Record Release For John Lodge’s 10,000 Light Yeas Ago @ Joe’s Pub 4/14/2015

First of all, Joe’s Pup is a stellar place to attend a concert or a small intimate Q&A/listening party, which this was. Lodge’s new album 10,000 Light Years Ago (his first solo album in 38 years!) is a lush 8-song achievement. It features some signature Moody Blue-isms (as well as Lodge bringing back two old Moody’s to play on the stand-out tune “Simply Magic” a song about his grandson) as well as country-influenced numbers, wrenching love ballads and some fiddle-stomping fun. All around this is a collection of songs that Lodge assured us are about his life, but not so much a looking backward as looking into the future.

Allen Klein: The Man Who Bailed Out The Beatles, Made The Stones, and Transformed Rock and Roll

Allen Klein: The Man Who Bailed Out The Beatles, Made The Stones, and Transformed Rock and Roll

If you don’t know who Allen Klein is, you are going to find all about this super dooper modern music manager/deal maker in Fred Goodman’s richly researched hardcover Allen Klein: The Man Who Bailed Out The Beatles, Made The Stones, and Transformed Rock and Roll. Feel about Klein as you might, coming new to his story and suspicious of any man with this much power and influence, enjoying his exploits and brashness, there is no denying that Allen Klein was a force to be be reckoned with…even moving amongst powerhouses like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

Composition…Master-Pieces…Identity @ The Connelly Theater

Not that I had any doubt that David Greenspan, stalwart performer/writer/creator wouldn’t handle the material as expertly as he did. Still, understanding, interpreting then speaking as well as acting text by Gertrude Stein is not an easy task. Greenspan’s spin at it Composition…Master-Pieces…Identity (running until 6/27 down at The Connelly Theater (220 East 4th Street, Manhattan) was pretty much masterful-as I say I expected it to be-but I also understood what he was on about, no easy task when it comes to Stein’s ruminations on these three subjects.

THE SEX FILES: Summer Time

While I am not supporting encounters where a man or woman indeed feels emotionally raped, reporters do need (or should be) careful with what words they sling around with their obvious intention. And in the case of D. T., he does makes the presidential race a hoot and a holler. With the big money going to come down most likely for a Clinton v.s. Bush race, how could any of us think that the whole thing is anything less than a circus of Herculean proportions these days anyway? Trump is just another clown in a circus full of clowns.

# 3-Who says it isn’t an honorable profession?

“Heather” (not her real name) of West Virginia, killed Neal Falls in self-defense, after the couple met at Heather’s home connecting via the escort section of backpage.com. Coming after the lady with an obvious intent to do her bodily harm or worse, Heather struggled with her attacker-who-she-thought-was-going-to-be-her-John and shot the man dead. But when police arrived they found what could be evidence in Falls’ car to link him to some unsolved escort killings in other states.
